After qualifying from the Group Stages of the Champions League over a fortnight ago and knowing who we could possibly go up against in the Round of 16 of the competition, I immediately created a poll on Gunnersphere.com asking fellow Arsenal fans who they would like to see play.
For all of you out there who don’t who we can potentially draw tomorrow morning, here is the list:
I think it’s fair to say, no side on the list above will be a walk in the park.
Malaga looks the ‘easiest’ side of the lot, but they have been extremely solid and impressive in the competition thus far, not losing a single game in the Group stages.
Well the results are in and have been verified, and its no surprise to me what team Arsenal fans want to draw tomorrow morning.
Results showed that 52% of votes cast (155 in total) want to take on Malaga.
Shockingly, Barcelona came in second place with 18% of the votes, while mega-rich PSG were third with 12%.
Juventus racked up 8% of the votes, while Dortmund took 7%, and the team the Arsenal faithful would least like to face in the next round in the competition is Bayern Munich, who took the rest of the percentile (3%).
To be honest, I too would like to see us draw Malaga tomorrow, but I won’t be too surprised if we get Barcelona after selling Alex Song to them over the summer – it always happens!
The draw takes place in Nyon, Switzerland, tomorrow morning from 10:30am.
